FYI all trixbox CE users

Just to give everyone a heads up from the Rhino’s mouth. Rhino products are proud to continually work with trixbox CE and future trixbox distributions. We also take great pride in our customers and realize that the more information that is posted the better informed we all are. That is why we take it very seriously to keep our customers informed of any ongoing issues with our hardware and distributions that we recommend.

The following issue has been popping up all over so please be aware of what you are installing at all times.

Please note that if you do a yum update for any of the following systems we cannot support your system until the system has been completely restored to factory settings.

trixbox CE 2.2

trixbox CE 2.2.1

trixbox CE 2.2.2

trixbox CE 2.2.3

trixbox CE 2.2.4

trixbox CE 2.2.5

trixbox CE 2.2.6

trixbox CE 2.2.7

trixbox CE 2.2.8

trixbox CE 2.2.9

This includes any future releases on the trixbox CE 2.2.x branch

This is due to errors in the trixbox repositories and this leads to corruption to your trixbox system.

The repositories for the upcoming trixbox 2.4 will be updated from what our trixbox sources have said, but for the trixbox 2.2.x repository this is not something that they can currently fix.

HDLC and FCS abort errors with Rhino T1/E1 Cards and PRI

Tuesday, November 20th, 2007

If you are seeing HDLC and FCS aborts in your logs. This is could be due to one of the following reasons:

1:

Make sure that your T1/E1 cards are at the following revisions and have the apropriate drivers installed on your system.

R1T1 -EC and Non-EC models must be at Hardware version 37 or above

R2T1 and R4T1 must be at Hardware version 36 or above

Driver revision must be at 2.0 and above.

If the above criteria is not met then you may see the aborts in your logs.

2:

If you are using CentOS4 and are using SATA drives you may see this issue.

You must use a kernel greater than 2.6.9.

By upgrading to an asterisk distribution with an updated kernel such as CentOS5 will alleviate these issues.

Please try one of the following systems:

Elastix

trixbox CE 2.4 (Beta for Cent 5)

RhinOSterisk (Alpha)
